WOW really so maybe there is hope?! I just find it extremely hard to be optimistic especially once that 6 week mark comes around and the spotting being I just hang on for the emotional and physical ride it takes me on. I think maybe the next time around I may push harder for progesterone testing and supplementations. It does not hurt to try something new, especially if there is no harm. Just like my OB wanting to put my on baby aspirin for fear that I am clotting and its what is the cause of my m/c.
Sometimes I feel like a failure, I cry to DH because I feel horrible that I can not give him the one thing that he wants most in this world. Yes we have our amazing and wonderful son. And because of him I still have some hope that maybe it is possible still to have another. Or even if I was never able to have anymore I would be satisfied with just him because above all he was such a gift and motherhood is a great experience. But sometimes I want to just give it.
Am I understanding everything right, Are you still pg? If so, there is no need to put yourself through the stress of waiting until next time. Call the doctor up or go to the ER and ask to have your progesterone checked and to have an u/s to see that everything is ok. Even an urgent care center would be the same co-pay as a doctor's office, but would be able to provide some basic answers and write you a rx for progesterone. Anyone that you tell you have had 7 losses should be willing to run additional tests. Nice doctor or not, it is cruel and unusual punishment to make someone suffer through that many losses without being willing to do more to find out what is wrong and what can be done to stop it. Yes, there is lots of hope!
Alyssa- Only one bleeding episode. Nothing since then. So still pg at the moment. OB is on vacation for two wks and the other OB's available in her practice are all men and none of them I have taking a like to. So I will just have to wait for her. Which is fine. By that time I should be 8 wks along. ER here will not do much for me, my last m/c at 9 wks I went in with horrible pain/contractions, bleeding and clots, only for them to tell me it was a fetal demise. Gave me pain meds and methergine and sent me on my way. I ended up going back to my OB a wk later and was diagnosed with infection due to retained tissue she was upset the ER MD did nothing when I was there and she had to do a d/c right there in the patient room under no anesthesia or pain meds. Worst experience of my life. So I feel the place with the most help would be straight from my OB.
